Legal Q&A | Phone Solicitation and the Do Not Call Registry
QUESTION: I am a former seller (not a broker), and my property has been off the market for a year. It never sold and the listing is long expired. I receive at least five phone calls a day right now from agents asking to list my property. I am on the Do Not Call Registry, and I am about to go find a lawyer to stop this nonsense. Can agents call me like this when I am on the Do Not Call Registry?
